“The City of Edinburgh Council
are currently reviewing the
provision of Advanced Higher
courses in schools and are likely
to move to consortia
arrangements where different
schools offer different AHs.
While this may result in not all
AHs being offered at Broughton,
courses will be available at other
schools / centres.”
